The purpose of the AADCAP is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas among the child and adolescent psychiatry division chiefs in medical schools in the United States and elsewhere for the purposes of:
  • Enhancing the growth and development of child and adolescent psychiatry as a discipline;
  • Strengthening graduate and postgraduate medical education, patient care and research in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry; and
  • Providing appropriate liaison between academic child and adolescent psychiatry as represented by the membership and administrative persons and organizations in medical education (e.g., departments of psychiatry, medical school deans, specialty boards), government, research, and health care delivery to forward our objectives.
